Integrated Systems (ISM) Body Physiotherapist Milsons Point
We assess your whole Body and internal systems to find the driver (cause) for your pain. Your whole body is connected, and pain does not always occur where the problem is.
If you have had pain for a while, and it has not responded to treatment, it is more likely there is another cause you havent found yet. It may be stiffness elsewhere, your alignment, internal pulls from other structures, and even stress. We will help you know what is causing your pain and direct your treatment effectively and efficiently.
Assessment includes your musculoskeletal system, nervous system, inflammation, lifestyle, and beliefs about your pain. All contribute to persistent or recurring pain.
Do you have ongoing or recurring pain?
The integrative systems model (ISM) approach looks at your whole body from head to toe. We look at your alignment, quality of movement in the painful task, muscular balance, the mobility of your nervous system (it needs to slide and glide through your body), lifestyle and more…all the systems that affect your body and pain.
We educate you how to manage and treat your own pain.
- Treatment begins with a comprehensive 1 hour assessment;
- We note your past history, any injuries, illness, treatment, medications, surgeries etc
- Examine lifestyle and its demands on you.
- Discuss your beliefs and emotions that may be influencing how your body is moving and therefore pain.
